  1. 1. Prediction of zinc-binding sites in proteins and efficient protein structure description and comparison

    Författare :Nanjiang Shu; Sven Hovmöller; Elisabeth Sauer-Eriksson; Alexander Luybartsev; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; zinc-binding; shape strings; protein structures; secondary structures; machine learning; Molecular biology; Molekylärbiologi; Biochemistry; Biokemi; Bioinformatics; Bioinformatik; Structural biology; Strukturbiologi; biokemi; Biochemistry; Structural Biology; strukturbiologi; Molecular Biology; molekylärbiologi;

    Sammanfattning : A large number of proteins require certain metals to stabilize their structures or to function properly. About one third of all proteins in the Protein Data Bank (PDB) contain metals and it is estimated that approximately the same proportion of all proteins are metalloproteins. LÄS MER

    Sammanfattning : The neuropeptide Y (NPY) system consists of 3-4 peptides and 4-7 receptors in vertebrates. It has powerful effects on appetite regulation and is involved in many other biological processes including blood pressure regulation, bone formation and anxiety. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Structural studies of proteins in apoptosis and lipid signaling

    Författare :Maria Dolores Herman Moreno; Pär Nordlund; Markus Gruetter; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; proteins; crystal structure; apoptosis; cancer; CoFi-Blot; kinases; lipid signaling; Structural biology; Strukturbiologi; Structural Biology; strukturbiologi;

    Sammanfattning : Signaling pathways control the fate of the cell. For example, they promote cell survival or commit the cell to death (apoptosis) in response to cell injury or developmental stimuli, decisions, which are vital for the proper development and functioning of metazoan. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Structural studies of the surface adhesin SspB from Streptococcus gordonii

    Författare :Nina Forsgren; Karina Persson; Inger Andersson; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Streptococcus gordonii; X-ray crystallography; surface adhesin; dental plaque; structural biology; Structural biology; Strukturbiologi; ODONTOLOGY; ODONTOLOGI; odontologi; Odontology;

    Sammanfattning : Surface proteins on microorganisms that build up the oral biofilm are key players in the formation of the biofilm. Antigen I/II proteins are surface adhesins found on virtually all oral streptococci and share a conserved multi-domain architecture. These adhesins bind surface components on other bacteria and on host cells. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Fighting Tuberculosis – : Structural Studies of Three Mycobacterial Proteins

    Författare :Alina Castell; Torsten Unge; Manfred Weiss; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Mycobacterium tuberculosis; Rv0216; Rv0130; Mycobacterium smegmatis; branched chain aminotransferase; X-ray crystallography; fatty acid metabolism; Structural biology; Strukturbiologi;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis presents the cloning, purification, crystallization, and structural studies of two unknown proteins from Mycobacterium tuberculosis, and of an aminotransferase from Mycobacterium smegmatis. Structural knowledge of these proteins is of highest interest for structure-based drug design, which is one of the approaches that can be used in order to fight tuberculosis (TB). LÄS MER
